Three ChildHub online courses on protecting migrant and refugee children and their families

2020-06-18

World Refugee Day, observed each year on June 20, celebrates the strength and courage of people who have been forced to flee their home country to escape conflict or persecution. The Day offers a chance to raise awareness of the plight of refugees around the world and of the efforts to protect their human rights.

Terre des hommes (Tdh) and its partners developed three online courses focusing on protecting migrant and refugee children and their families.
